this was intriguing. we've obviously, since the tragedy of sandy hook elementary, a lot of talk about gun control and what can be done. president obama talking about it publicly and emotionally. here's president obama with david gregory yesterday talking about guns. let's come back and we'll quickly talk about it. >> here's the bottom line. we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. and so, this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. with public opinion, there's nothing you can't do, and without public opinion, there's very little you can get done in this town. >> so, i like that because it's a recognition of the facts, which is that politicians tend to be a reactive, rather than a proactive species, even the president of the united states. so, let's talk about his public opinion point. where is public opinion? it's moved a little bit on guns, but how much has it moved? >> marginally. you saw pew had their poll out where it went from like 42% to 49% -- >> in terms of people supporting stricter -- >> right, exactly. >> yeah. >>

. that's one thing. but in this context, in the wake of the sandy hook tragedy and people are upset about guns in the community, about gun owners, about people like nancy lanza, i think when you publish people's names and addresses in that way, in that context, you really make them in to targets and that's unfair. i'm reminded of tom perielo running for re-election someone published what they thought was home address on a blog locally and a person went to that address and cut the gas line there. it was actually his brother's house who had children. fortunately, they were out and thank god no one was injured but i think you have to be really careful and again that was publicly known information but opening people up to be targets like that and treetding them like criminals, they're not sex offenders. they're law- >> biding people that went to the trouble -- >> isn't there an issue with if you're moving in to a neighborhood, if you're moving in to a community, isn't that a valuable piece of information to know potentially if you have children or raising them -- >> steve, let me respond to t
